Lamun Winners Tingali Kawas losers

Naon winners kasampak kawas? Dupi maranehna jangkung atawa pendék? Hideung atawa bodas? Strong atawa lemah? Kuring nebak eta gumantung kana naon we mean ku “Tien.”

Kuring sedot kana carita hiji meunangna ieu bulan katukang salaku maca lengthy, tapi biografi ngalakonan tina Michael Jordan. Akun lengkep ngingetkeun kuring naha obsesi loba masarakat jeung manéhna wates dina ibadah pahlawan. Loba hal bisa ceuk ngeunaan “airness-Na” tapi taya sahijieun kungsi bisa ngaku manéhna teu juara hiji. Naha manéhna kasampak kawas meunangna saméméh manéhna dapatkan sakabeh jalma cingcin kajawaraan, sanajan?

Salaku maca buku, eta seemed jelas ti budak leutik nya éta manéhna bakal jawara. Naha nu ieu muter beredar-Na salaku kendi liga saeutik atawa salaku pamaén basket SMP varsity; spurt tumuwuhna SMA-Na atawa game-Na unggul shot salila taun freshman-Na jeung UNC.

Jeung nu naon we nyaho manéhna keur: unggul genep cingcin kajawaraan, lima MVPs, jeung 14 Sadaya appearances Star (teu nyebut pamaréntahan unchallenged di kaulinan sapatu athletic).

jenis ieu kakuasaan unchallenged naon biasana datang ka pikiran kahiji lamun urang mikir “Tien.” Tapi kuring hayang urang ninggalkeun kamar pikeun jenis sejen meunangna. Jenis meunangna anu teu boga sagala makings of jawara. Jenis meunangna nu kelemahan leuwih noteworthy ti kaunggulan-Na. Jenis meunangna anu kasampak leuwih kawas pecundang a sakapeung.

ngawasa, tapi nalukkeun

Kuring gé jadi jujur ​​sareng anjeun. Dua taun geus endah pisan ku sababaraha cara, tapi maranéhanana ogé geus geulis teuas. Kuring geus ngarasakeun hiji nikah kuat jeung awal dua kahirupan saeutik. Kuring tos ngalaman kabagjaan minsitry pastoral dina gereja cageur. Tapi kuring geus ogé geus plagued jeung kalemahan. Ieu teuas pikeun luar ngabejaan kadang alatan kuring sigana bisa ngalakonan jadi loba hal alus. Tapi lamun ngan Anjeun bisa nempo saeutik ngadeukeutan.

Kuring geus sindrom kacapean kronis. abdi terang, Kuring kungsi kungsi ngadéngé eta saméméh boh. Meureun éta naha lamun pencét kuring eta dirasakeun leuwih kawas punch mamat ti hiji bout diatur.

Leuwih taun saterusna eta teu meunang leuwih alus, tapi masih kenca kuring cangkang naon mah dipake nya jadi. Kuring geus cicing tujuh taun jeung kacapean neverending. Kuring jujur ​​teu bisa inget kamari waktu kuring ngarasa rested- kawas batré mah maot, tapi kungsi recharged.

Hégarmanah nyaéta kawas bahan bakar nu kakuatan unggal wewengkon hirup urang. Urang kudu eta kanggo unggal tugas, unggal paguneman, unggal pamikiran. Jeung lamun suluh nu low, sagalana miboga. Kanggo sababaraha alesan, awak mah moal hayu atuh ngeusian bengsin. Gantina tank mah lingers katuhu luhur “E,” jeung Kuring coba make ngaliwatan. Hayu urang kenca kuring limping ngaliwatan unggal wewengkon hirup mah.

Kuring ngabejaan ka maneh kabeh ieu, teu simpati Anjeun, tapi tangtangan kumaha mikir. Sababaraha bisa kasampak di deadlines lasut, the discouraging days, the occasional tension in my marriage, jeung mikir, “lalaki, guy ieu kaleungitan ayeuna.” Eta yakin karasaeun kawas kaleungitan basa kuring geus ngarobah rencana hirup mah can deui atawa nyaritakeun putra mah, “Daddy sacara teuing capé ulin ayeuna.” Kuring bakal bohong lamun kuring ceuk ieu teu ngalemahkeun jeung nyoba. Tapi, Kuring masih ngaku meunangna amis mah.

teu, Aku teu nanaon superhuman kuat juara; Aku sabenerna geulis lemah. Aku hiji jenis beda meunangna. Jeung kuring nyangka loba anjeun teuing.

A Jenis Beda Winner

Atuh geus meunangna, tapi teu alatan kakuatan mah geus aman deui. meunangna mah kajadian di spite of kelemahan mah, komo dosa mah. Aku teu Koswara anu ngéléhkeun foes jeung aman meunang; Nyaan ngan narima eta. Kuring geus meunangna di Yesus.

Paul nyimpen eta saperti ieu di Rum:

Sakumaha ditulis, "Keur demi Anjeun urang keur tiwas sadaya poé panjang; urang dianggap salaku domba jadi dibantai. "Teu, dina sagala hal ieu urang leuwih ti conquerors ngaliwatan manéhna anu dipikacinta urang” (Rum 8:36-37).

Paul kutipan Jabur 44, mana Psalmist nu cries kaluar pikeun pitulung Allah di satengahing sidang. Jeung Paul migunakeun ayat anu nyieun titik-Na nu euweuh bisa bolaykeun naon anu dipigawé Allah pikeun urang dina Kristus.

Salah sahiji hal nu paling keuna nyaeta sanggeus mentioning hal dahsyat: keur ditelasan, keur dibantai, Paul nyebutkeun komo dina eta hal urang conquerors. Komo lamun urang leungit, urang geus unggul. Komo lamun urang keur keur ngawasa ku dunya fallen ieu, urang tetep conquerors ngaliwatan Yesus. Nu battles poean leutik teu nangtukeun nasib urang, sabab perang geus kungsi meunang. Teu nu mawa anjeun harepan luar biasa? Lamun urang geus di Kristus, urang bener teu bisa leungit.

Tiasa waé, sapertos abdi, anjeun dina usum tina kasusah gede. Kuring hayang ajak Anjeun sareng sababaraha cara Jigana ngeunaan bebeneran ieu.

1. Ulah Ngan Tingali Anjeun

Lamun kuring méakkeun poé mah fokus dina kalemahan mah grumbling di jantung mah, Kuring ngan eupan discouragement mah BBM rasa palsu mah hopelessness. Lamun kuring neuteup kuring Jigana mah geus leungit, tapi basa kuring neuteup di Yesus Kaula ngingetkeun mah meunang. Lamun manéhna ngéléhkeun foes-Na, manéhna ngéléhkeun eta atas nama urang.

2. Ulah Ngan Tingali Ayeuna

Lamun kuring ngan difokuskeun ayeuna atawa ieu sababaraha taun katukang, Kaula tempted mikir ieu téh kumaha bakal salawasna. Tapi Yesus dibeuli hal unbelievable keur kuring dina cross mah geus teu expereienced can. Kuring teu apal Allah imperfectly ayeuna, tapi kuring dibere nyaho manéhna sampurna saterusna. Manéhna komo gé méré kuring brand awak anyar jeung ngusap jauh sadaya lawon mah.

Urang ogé bisa tempted fokus dina maranéhanana anu sigana bisa unggul ayeuna. Jalma anu teu boga percobaan jeung setbacks sarua nu sok sigana bala urang. Tapi tim nu bakal unggul dina kuartal katilu teu sok tim anu ngéléhkeun di ahir. Loba jalma sigana bisa unggul nu battles poean, tapi teu dipercaya dina One anu keur meunang perang. Ulah ngan kasampak di ayeuna.

Sweet meunangna

Michael Jordan tetep salah sahiji greatest jeung paling populér winners urang geus kungsi katempo. Tapi aya ngéléhkeun leuwih badag bisa miboga. Jeung taya urang geus naon waktu nu diperlukeun meunang perang diri urang sorangan; ngan Kristus bisa ngalakukeun nu. Manéhna ngéléhkeun sadaya musuh urang keur urang: tanpa, Iblis, jeung pati sorangan. Sadaya waktu nu diperlukeun pikeun ngagabung tim jeung benefit ti ngéléhkeun-Na anu ngarobah tina dosa jeung percanten dina Jurusalamet. saha, komo weakest antara urang bisa winners.

Ieu bebeneran nu aya dina jantung mah basa kuring wrote kecap ieu di “Sweet meunangna”:

Koswara teu hiji nu bakal unggul inning katujuh
Piala teu indit ka leuwih nu meunang awal alus
Lamun kuring ngomong mah meunang kuring teu mean poé ieu Aku di
Maksudna mah poe nu lamun langit kulawu diudar kaluar, mangka Kaula unggul 'ngabalukarkeun I pamaréntahan jeung manéhna

Pastikeun pikeun nyokot salinan “naek” lamun datang kaluar 10.27.14!

    Trip I’ve been playing sweet victory non-stop the past couple days, God’s working in your life and is going to be working through your album. Sholat pikeun anjeun

  2. Victoria Joneswalon

    This is such an inspiring word. Your song articulates the intricate relationship between glory moments, and uncontrollable pitfalls. hatur nuhun. I now know that everything, good and bad, comes down from the Father of Lights.

  3. SteveLwalon

    perjalanan, this song has been a huge blessing into my life already! My dad and sister have some health issues that they have been dealing with for several years and your description for why and how you wrote this song is beautiful and comforting. Thank you for being true to your faith and to the gospel.

  4. Lydiawalon

    This was so encouraging to me. My energy has been at the same level as yours for the past two yearsI was finally diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease a couple months ago and my fatigue is finally getting lighter! I hope you can eventually find something that helps you! You’re doing so so so much more than people realize. Props to you! You’re an inspiration to me :)

  5. Denisewalon

    God bless you Mr. Barefield. I’ve been utterly blessed watching your sermons, listening to your music, reading your articles and posts. I pray supernaturally healing in the mighty name of Jesus over your body. I pray for continued strength and endurance to touch you so you can do the Lords work without growing tired but rather to be renewed each and every day. I pray blessings over you, Jennifer and your two little ones. I thank you Lord for Williams obedience to Your calling in his life as a pastor, husband, father and artist. Let your light continue to shine thru his life. Thank you Father, in Jesus’s name, Amin.

    I’m a true believer. In today’s society it’s very easy to get side tracked worried about how other people live their lives. Can’t wait for RISE to come out. Trip u really do inspire me to be the best man an father to wife an kids.

  7. Patrickwalon

    perjalanan, thanks for sharing your heart man. The fact you are suffering and are still able to produce such quality work is inspiring. God has really used your music to speak to my life. And I’m so grateful there are guys like you in the music (specifically hip-hop) industry who aren’t afraid of absolute truth. I hope Rise isn’t your last album, but if it is, I’m so thankful for all that you’ve taught me in your past 4 albums.

  8. Vincewalon

    I’m always encouraged by your posts bro and this might be the best one yet! I’m praying for your strength and can’t wait to cop the album!

  9. Charlanawalon

    Hey Trip,

    I truly enjoy your song “Sweet meunangna”, it stays on repeat & I look forward to hearing the rest of the CD. Allah ngaberkahan anjeun & your family & continued success to you!

  10. Chesterwalon

    I recently saw your performance while you were here in Denver October 9th. I had no idea about your health maladies until then. I was deeply touched when you performed your songSweet Victory.I too have been battling various physical ailments nearing a time of four years. janten, your song resonanted with me, bringing me to the brink of tears. Having just read your piece on your illness, I have found that you have been suffering from the same thing I have been for some time: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It was through my physical struggles that compelled me to reliquish my pride and life of indulgence and brought me back to a renewed commitment to Christ; ultimately, I am grateful that this has happened to me. I have only met one other person who has an accurate idea of the challenges that this syndrome brings. I have been showered with the outpouring of God’s grace, prayers from others, and the unyielding commitment of my wife which helps me continue with God’s purposes as I continue my studies to go into ministry as a philosopher. We serve a God who not only intimately understands the suffering of the world, but conquered through it. Thank you for your service of God’s kingdom and disclosing details of your life.

    perjalanan! You have been an encouragement through your music and sermons bro! Love how God is using you! Your bangers get me goin bro ! I’ll be praying for you too! Oh and -good look on that song too!

  13. Mackenderwalon

    I was tremendously blessed by this article. My heart rejoices as I read and ponder my future inheritance in Christ. Thank you trip. Can’t wait to get the album. I’ve always been blessed by you man.

  14. Erica D. Clantonwalon

    This was really what i needed to read and Sweet Victory really touches my heart. Thanks Trip for sharing what God gave u so we can see His vision for our lives!! Praying for u!

  15. isaiahwalon

    Love your music man. It and other Christian hip hop music has and is and will continue to help God change my life. Our struggle is not forever as you well know tripp. Thanks for the reminder.

  16. GabeTavianowalon

    Thanks for being transparent, perjalanan. Our fam’s moving to Cambodia on January 3rd. I have a few private questions for you, hoping to ask before we leave. Could you maybe shoot me an email (to the email I used to comment here)? Looking forward to my pre-order of RISE. Really great work!!

  17. ChristyCappwalon

    I am so lookingforward the album!! Thats a great song to start it off with. True talent and REAL lyrics that change life.. ain’t nothinbetter than that! CFS sucks and is devastating. I got it at 18 in college when it first came out. But you can overcome it and you will..with proper diet and excercise. So there’s hope! Prayer first, water every hour. I made water my best friend to detox, cut white flour, pasta and fast food. Most of us walkinaround dehydrated and replacing it with more food. It’s through our trials that he works in us the most. In that time of being sick (still) was when God was most able do His workBest wishes to you and your album and your fam and your church & much continued success!

  18. Yesuswalon

    Awesome insight, into what the world would have us see aslosingin this life. When in all reality we are all born losers, including those, that the world considerswinners”..! If, they don’t come to theknowledge” atawa “knowingof the TRUTH, which isJESUS”, they remain losers..! Even if, to the world, they appear to be winners..! Thanks for sharing yourweakness”, when in REALITY, you have been made STRONGE..!! Praise be to The Lord, that He would make known to us through our weakness that we are TRULY STONGE because of Knowing Him…!! Keep pressing forward my friend and brother even if The Lord grants you only His grace in the mist of your struggles..!! Praying for You..!

  19. Ashleywalon

    I had no idea you were facing this battle. I read your book, “the good lifea while back but don’t remember seeing that. I was so blessed by your article today, you’re in my prayers brother. My cousin suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and it’s very difficult for her to enjoy things she used to. Hatur nuhun pikeun babagi, my heart goes out to you and your wife today. Fight the good fight. You’re a True Champion. Jesus’s love conquers all. P.s. dope song too!

  20. Rachelwalon

    I am so thankful for Sweet Victory. I listened on YouTube and it gave me my spark back. I have been struggling with discouragement. I think I lost my hope here for a few weeks. Can’t think of how else to put it. Hopelessness made me feel cut off from God and was the worst part of all. I was crying out to him, asking him to help me out of this overwhelming despondency. Your Sweet Victory lyrics spoke straight to that broken part of me and retriggered my hope. This article has also encouraged me. Allah sangkan alus. I was surrounded by people who love me at church but had no idea how to ask them for help, or even how to explain what I was going thru. God decided to use you, all the way from Texas. hatur nuhun!

  21. Julia digosokwalon

    perjalanan (and Jess)–
    Thanks so much for this encouraging song. I cannot wait to get your new album. urang (my Parents) just adopted a little boy from Haiti. He has cerebral palsy. Although it has been a hard road with all his disabilities, I know that Jesus gives us victory over all things. I saw you in concert in Salt Lake City, UT a couple weeks ago, and you gave me such hope. hatur nuhun!
    And congratulations to you and the Mrs. on the new little one. Whether he (or her) is born or not. :) Love you guys!

  22. Dinawalon

    perjalanan, I am about as far from your expected crowd base as one can getCaucasian Canadian mama of five who drives a mini van! But blaring from my speakers is always some rap with a steady rotation of Trip Lee! I love the song Sweet Victory and this reality that was birthed in a new way from your health struggle resonated with me. For the last 8 years I’ve struggled with a similar weakness after the premature birth of my daughter. It is a humbling road to walk and one I still learning to trust God in. Thank you for sharing your hope and providing an example of an unashamed man of God for young men to respect and emulate. Berkah ka anjeun, bro!

  23. Diwalon

    Downloaded the album yesterday and I love it! My fav is “Sadaya naek Nepi”; I have it on replay… ngabarakatak… thanks for the wonderful album Trip. Hope to watch you in concert one day.

  24. Gabkywalon

    Wah. This is my first time coming across this site and I’m loving all the posts I’ve read so far. I’ve been so blessed and encouraged.This is just what I needed at this moment to know that despite my weaknesses he still reigns in my life and I can look to him and always be uplifted.
    I had no idea you were going through this, you’re in my prayers. Thank you so much for sharing. God bless you so much.
    Just listened to Sweet Victory and I’ve been so blessed by your song! And I can’t wait to listen to the whole album. I’m sure that’s all I’ll be listening to these coming weeks. Continue the good work!

  25. Latashawalon

    This blog post was such a blessing to me. remen, I don’t feel understood by family, babaturan, or some church family on this walk, but this post help me put things in perspective and stop complaining about life. I realized that there is a blessing within our weaknesses. God truly shows his power/love for us, by helping us overcome our struggles, when we realize that He is the only way we can keep going. Thanks for the post and your song Sweet Victory is amazing!

    Grace jeung Peace,

    My daughter dedicated this song to me. I could not stop listening and crying. I Have been battling immune system issues for 15 taun. The last 3 years were near hell. But the Lord was dealing hard with my heart during that time. I finally got it and surrendered to him. I am now getting answers left and right and coming out slowly. I’m not out all the way, but I’m not as exhausted as I was. It’s amazing!!! This song……this song! Tears……

    perjalanan,
    I always feel a sense of joy when I hear a new song from you or even see a posted sermon or read your blog. You are inspiring! I don’t directly know what CFS is like but I have seen it. A family friends mother from my church has it. There are times when we see her then there are long stretches when we don’t. But whenever I do see her she is always joyful. When I read this I thought of her because I tell her every time how much I am inspired by her that in the midst of it all she praises Jesus. She has been victorious because she refuses to think down on the situation. You two are most definitely winners! I’m glad that you are able to share your heart with us. It means so much to me.

  28. Burtonwalon

    perjalanan,
    You don’t know how much this means to me. When it seems like the whole world is against you, you know that you’ll win in the end with flying colors! And now knowing what you’ve been going through the past seven years, you can know that you are in my prayers Bro. Thanks for opening up your heart to us.

  29. Femiwalon

    perjalanan, you are a huge inspiration. RISE is a great album and i love it! As concerning your health, i believe its just a temporary flame of afflicton preparing you for the glory to be revealed. God is set to use you more brother. so don’t grow weary. keep believing and praying. I love you brother.

    perjalanan,
    Chronic Fatigue has plagued my life from when I was 13 atawa 14 years old all the way up until only a matter of weeks ago (Abdi 28 ayeuna). Years of prayer and research finally led my family and I to the answer; Diet was the root cause. Removing all grains, dairy, nightshades, preservatives and processed foods from my life has led to a complete recovery. I have never felt better.

    I don’t know if there could be a similar dietary solution for your CFS, but I wanted to let you know anyway.

    Jieun nepi karya alus. I’ll be praying for you.

  31. ThomLomaswalon

    Thank you for sharing these words. I wish I would’ve read this last year but I wasn’t meant to read it until now. Now that I had a little better understanding on why these things happened. nuhun sakali deui, berkah Allah.

    I love you trip lee you are a big inspiring role model to my walk in faith with god. Ive learned to trust him ive learned that the scriptures when applied to my life become blessings in so many ways. You truly inspire me and I hope that one day god will give me the opportunity to meet you and lecrae you both have helped me see life instead of death. Everyday I listen to gospel hip hop and start my morning with thanking god for waking me up then I make coffee and put my bluebuds in my ears and turn on gospel hip hop and listen study even loom up words I dont know in the dictionary at words I dont quite understand so I lnow the deeper meaning because im a deep thinker. One pray and hearts desire of mine is to talk to you in some way one day even if its just a few messages on facebook or a phone call but would be awesome to sit down with you in person and discuss allot of christian beliefs and answer each others questions and concerns. kuring 26 years old I have a rough background and past and christ has changed me from day to day all for his glory and a greater good so I can reach out and inspire others with my testimony that shows in my actions not just in words . Im a believer. Rum 1:16 I am unashamed of the gospel. I talk about god everday with people even my friends look up to me and have changed because of how god changed me. I really hope you see this message from me and read it through. Your story is strong and christ is in your heart always. Please if you have a moment one day text me. Call me. Write me on facebook. Email me id love to just have one conversation with you. Btw your story brought tears to my eyes. Allah ngaberkahan anjeun,pamajikan anjeun,and children in all your days and all you do.
